One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to meet so many talented and amazing people. I love how the food blogging-sphere has becoming this ginormous space for sharing kitchen knowledge, wisdom, and a never-ending array of recipes and ideas.
Today I’m participating in the Food Blogger Central’s first Blog Hop! A blog hop is a fun activity in which participates are introduced to other bloggers. Bloggers are paired up and asked to try out another blogger’s recipe. It’s a great way to meet new bloggers and try out new recipes.
I was selected to make a dish from Nagi of Recipe Tin Eats. Oh man. I had the hardest time trying to figure out what to make because she has SO MANY delicious and enticing recipes on her site. Nagi is super creative. Her dishes are always colorful and well composed. There’s nothing too daunting or time consuming to make. Plus, she has this awesome “meals on the table in 15 minutes” section that you need to definitely check out.
I opted for one her most popular recipes- her No Washing Up Ham, Egg and Cheese Roll. It’s a quick breakfast that is just as easy to make for a crowd as it for a party of two. I switched it up by adding pesto- simply because I love pesto eggs.
This recipe requires just a handful of ingredients: bread rolls, eggs, sliced ham, shredded cheese, and pesto. I suggest using Kaiser rolls, also called Vienna rolls. You can easily find these bread rolls at supermarket bakeries (think Ralphs/Krogers, Vons, and Whole Foods). Sometimes the bread rolls are plain like the one I have, other times they’re topped with poppy seeds or sesame seeds. The bread rolls are either formed into a knot or marked with a Kaiser stamp. It’s a great bread for making sandwiches, and it’s perfect for these bread bowls because they hold up really well.
